Here is a quick teaser shot of my '72 Hako I purchased from JDM Legends. I'll keep this thread up and post up updates as time goes on. Motor is stock L20, but has the upgraded twin, side-draft SU carburetors. GTR aesthetic exterior modifications completed and a Fujitsubo exhaust. Wheels are Volk TE37v's in 15x9 (-15) and 15 x10 (-25).

I think I bought the hood trim from your car. The car looks great.

Hey amorphiss,

Tire specs are Falken ZE-912's in a 205/50/15 and 225/50/15. Here is a pic of the suspension.

Weld-on-coilover kit with Front & Rear Koni Shocks, Front T3 adjustable camber plates, Rear RS Start adjustable collar w/ springs , Custom rear strut mounts (and zinc coated), and also picked up a set of new rear strut bushings.

Been looking for a set of long champs for my Hako, and had these built by Araya wheels with the same sizing as the TE37v's (15x9 -15 and 15x10 -25).

Here is an interior shot. I couldn't be happier with the condition and planning on keeping it completely stock.

Con2k, everything works! Lights are a bit dim, which I suppose is normal.

Clean looking interior. The best looking car (condition) I have seen brought in by JDML.

Wow.

Absolutely superb. I haven't been graced with seeing one of these glorious creations in person yet, I'm not sure there are even any on this island.

Would be nice with a couple more photos of the exterior, but I could look at the single photo up top for hours!
